Bruce Springsteen to Promote 'Promise' at Rome Fest
ROME – Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen will make an appearance at the International Rome Film Festival, organizers said Friday.
Springsteen will be in town on Monday for the European premiere screening of The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town, directed by Thom Zimmy. The film is in competition in the festival’s Extra sidebar. The appearance from Springsteen had been rumored about in the local media in recent days.
The film tells the story of the making of the album “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” Springsteen’s 1978 follow up to the highly successful “Born to Run” album two years earlier. The film held its world premiere in September at the Toronto Film Festival.
“More than rich, more than famous, more than happy, I wanted to be great,” the film shows Springsteen saying.
Springsteen is the second big name rocker to announce he would attend the fifth edition of the Rome festival. Earlier, Lenny Kravitz announced he would appear at the festival Wednesday for an evening dedicated to the Save the Children charity on Nov. 3.
The festival, which got underway Thursday, will conclude Nov. 5.
